The Small World of Miniature Bayonets

A number of letter-opener bayonets associated with the United States Marine Corps have been featured in previous articles in this series. Two further examples have, however, recently become available for study. The first of these is 199 mm in overall length with a 140 mm blade and a 7.0 mm muzzle ring. There is no scabbard. This miniature is a chromium-plated aluminium (or alloy?) casting (non-magnetic). The pommel has a 17 mm-long rectangular-sectioned mortise along its upper side. On the reverse is a fixing catch button, spring loaded but otherwise functionless. The two dark-brown (wood-grain effect) plastic grips appear to

Producers Steve Marriott & Ronnie Lane

Engineer Glyn Johns

Courting controversy courtesy of its lyrics and acclaim for the still novel production techniques, this Small Faces classic was a hit both at home and in the US. John Pickford reports.

The summer of 1967, forever known as The Summer Of Love, was an incredibly fertile period for pop music. The sonic experiments pioneered by the era’s artists, producers and engineers ushered in a new progressive age, when, for the first time, a distinction was made between lightweight pop acts and serious rock bands. The Small Faces, a group of London



It’s a great paradox that the skills most experienced motorcyclists want to master are the same skills they hope they will never have to use out there on the road. What will I do when my front tire washes out at full lean? How will I react if I lock the front brake? What if the rear tire spins up and steps out?

It’s difficult to learn how you will react beyond your limits without exceeding those limits first. Watching other riders, or even following other riders, rarely answers these questions. Watching Marc Marquez drag his elbow is one thing;

How old do aquarium fishes get?

I am not aware of very much truly reliable information about the life spans of various fishes in aquariums. Much of the reported “data” is anecdotal and far from scientific. That fishes get older in the aquarium, where there are no predators, than in nature is undisputed—but diseases and mistakes made during care may shorten their lives. Information about age can therefore only be a point of reference. Among catfishes, a life expectancy of 7-12 years for Corys is normal, but for bigger catfishes 10-15 years or more is not unusual.

To research the maximum possible age for a Bristle-nose

Not all dreams come true …

Now there is no shortage of planting material.

In specialty stores and nurseries can buy different varieties. But then to not experience the bitter disappointment, always look carefully at what buying. Last year in February I got a little delenki phlox in plastic packaging. Through the transparent packaging spotted that there are living root buds, and therefore was not afraid to take it, even in winter.

House got its purchase, inspected and put in an ordinary flower pot. The plant went into rapid growth and in early June, when I planted it on a bed, had five well-developed shoots.

Let’s get something straight: small spaces don’t have to be boring. In fact, they are often more interesting than bigger spaces. As you can see from this month’s bold cover*, it’s about thinking big and using your imagination.

As we see it, a small space gives you license to have fun. You need to be creative in how you work with the size and the layout — this tends to lead to unique design solutions that would never have come into being in a larger space, where it’s easy to be lazy and follow the same old formula.
